Iggy Pop's Post Pop Depression album, a collaboration with co-writer and producer Joshua Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age, is his most critically acclaimed and commercially successful album for many years. On May 13, 2016, Iggy Pop brought his Post Pop Depression live show to London's revered Royal Albert Hall and almost tore the roof off!…
The Who's Live at the Royal Albert Hall captures a charity concert for a cancer organization the reunited group performed in November of 2000. Given the band's spotty track record in their farewell tours and reunions of the '80s and '90s, it's easy for some longtime fans to be skeptical of the musical merits of the triple-disc hybrid SACD release of this concert, but this is an exceptional reunion concert, finding the band at their strongest since their early-'80s breakup. Supported by drummer Zak Starkey and longtime keyboardist John "Rabbit" Bundrick, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and John Entwistle (in one of his last major concerts) sound reinvigorated, playing such standards as "I Can't Explain" and "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" with vigor and energy, as if they haven't played them countless times.
The fourteenth and final show from the 1995 European tour – The second night at the Royal Albert Hall. While waiting for definitive notes from Sid the Smith, we continue to use Stormy’s show notes. His personal highlights were Dinosaur, a “nice” One Time, good Soundscape intro and B’Boom, Thrakking, and Heartbeat. Overall a good show.
Unlucky for some, the thirteenth show from the 1995 European Tour – We find ourselves in dear old Blighty, the first of two nights at The Royal Albert Hall. While waiting for definitive notes from Sid the Smith, we continue to use Mr Stormy’s show notes. His personal highlights were a “stomping” Red, B’Boom, Thrakking (with RF’s playing at 3.22 reminding him of the ambient bit of Fracture before the refrain), VROOOM VROOOM also “stomping”, The Talking Drum “best of the tour”. Overall, a really good show.
